This brotherhood is in charge of the Procession of 'Los Estudiantes' on Holy Wednesday.
Year of Foundation
Founded in 1997
The “Cofradía de Estudiantes,” as it is commonly called, has “twinned” with brotherhoods from all over Galicia and Spain and has endeavoured to be a source of evangelisation and commitment to its surroundings by organising annual cultural and social events. This brotherhood has given rise to fusion initiatives such as “Compostela Choirs” and “Santiago Band.”
Church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios or "das Orfas"
To Be Taken Into Account...
Procession featuring guiding cross accompanied by children, band music with drummers of the real Banda de Ourense.
Its members wear a serge habit with black satin hood and wristbands, ivory-coloured cord and scapular.
The statue of “El Santísimo Cristo de la Misericordia” is an Ecce Homo sculpted by Leopoldo Rodríguez in Brazilian cedar wood. Another "Santísimo Cristo de la Misericordia", representing Jesus on the cross, is carried by four women on procession and belongs to the Colexiata do Sar.
The brotherhood organises a special procession every year to venerate the Apostle in Praza de Praterías, the only penance station where the procession is in front of the Cathedral.
